Sali Hughes recommends products that improve melasma
By Weekend’s All Ages model Dewi Rees, 29
My hair is always a mess. I get it cut every few months and rely on hair products to tame the mess between cuts, so it passes as some kind of s style. It’s not particularly short, so I need something with a decent hold.
My first impression of the
Superdrug Styling Putty (£1.99, 75ml, superdrug.com) was that it was quite oily and had a strong but not unpleasant smell. After being applied to wet hair it seemed to mould easily but gave little actual hold. It dried quite quickly and gave a separated kind of texture, which is isn’t really what I’m after.
The Murdock Matt Putty (£14, 1 100ml, murdocklondon.com) had a grainy texture that was preferable to Superdrug’s offering, and a nicer smell. It gave a firm hold, but it wasn wasn’t t firm fi enough for me. The texture w was good and it was easy to reshape throughout the day, but this is probably probab better for people with hair that’s that shorter than mine.
Althou Although the smell and texture of the Pa Paul Mitchell Flexible Style Lab Elastic Elas Shaping Paste (£17.25, 50ml, fee feelunique.com) reminded me of PVA PV glue from school, I liked everythi everything else about it. It gave a strong hold that could be reworked if needed, needed the texture was nice and it had a b bit of shine.
Bumbl Bumble and bumble’s SumoTech (£23, 50m 50ml, bumbleandbumble. co.uk) w was my favourite. It gave a great h hold and the texture was similar to using a wax together with a paste, w which is my usual routine. It had a subtle, sub natural smell. This will be my new ne go-to, but I’d use it with the Paul Mitchell if I needed extra hold or s shine.
